Mountain Weather for 11,000ft. Tuesday, April 9.

Date: 04/09/2019

It’s day three of Mom Natures, Bring Back The Heat Festival. Since the shirtless people didn’t gather on Elk Ave yesterday to reflect the suns heat as requested, Mama has decided to really bring the heat on this final day. Colorado is sitting on the backside of a high-pressure ridge. Warm air is being pulled up into the area on southwest flow and we’ll see those high temps jump another few degrees today. Both valley temps in the area and mountain temps will jump into the 50’s. Winds will be light through most of the day and start to pick up in the afternoon, while the sky will be partly cloudy and increase late in the afternoon. You best get your hot party on today, because it’s all about to change.

An approaching low-pressure system will bring increasing moisture late this afternoon with building clouds. A cold front looks to arrive on Wednesday morning with a big drop in temperatures and the arrival of snow. Winter is coming back baby! Snow showers will continue on Wednesday through Wednesday night with storm totals ranging from 5 to 10 inches by Thursday morning. Lite snow showers may continue on Thursday, as we await the next low presser system or storm #2 to arrive on Friday. Unsettled weather then takes us into the weekend. There will be some breaks in the weather of course but all and all we are looking to a return to winter coming up.
